The Creative Writer's Workshop, founded by Irene Graham in 1991, uses innovative right brain/left brain learning techniques to encourage creativity and imagination. Irene's workshops guide you through the development, structure and creation of story in fiction and creative non-fiction. Workshops are open to new, emerging and advanced writers.

Set on the mythical island of Inis Mor off the west coast of Galway, in the heart of W.B. Yeats countryside in Sligo and in Skibbereen, Co. Cork, writers also explore ancient sites with talks on legends and mythology. Workshops include grade A private room accommodation, gourmet food, evening trips to explore irish music, pubs and special Irish treats!

Writers also engage with our literary tradition with Irene's online memoir writing course. Her 16 week interactive course with audio tutorials and workbook shows you how to focus, develop and write your memoirs and preserve them for future generation in the online memoir archive.
